3DMark is a multi-platform hardware benchmark designed to test varying resolutions and detail levels of 3D gaming performance. We run the Windows platform test and in particular the Time Spy benchmark, which is indicative of high-end 1440p PC Gaming.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider
We use the DirectX 12 mode, anti-aliasing disabled, and the Highest quality preset.
Tom Clancy’s The Division 2
We run the game with quality set to Ultra, VSync disabled, and DX12 mode.
Aided by their full PCIe x16 connection to the graphics card, unlike the x8 link for Gigabyte’s B550 Aorus Master, the ASUS B550 options take comfortable victories in 3DMark scoring.
Both of the ROG STRIX options continue to outperform Gigabyte’s alternative when looking at gaming frame rates. The performance from the B550 boards is basically identical to that of ASUS X570 competitor.
